Here is a blog posting from Zach Nielsen regarding pornography. It begins with some hints to men about doing things to combat this in their lives and then proceeds to talk about a study about the insidious costs that pornography exacts from its victims. There is  help available for people wrestling with this self destructive, women abusing, God defacing sin. All men are affected by it. If it is a problem for you – and the odds are it is, then get some help. You will not beat this alone. Read the article. Pray. Make yourself accountable to Christian men who will be honest with you.

Read the following Psalm and think about how it relates to what we watch on television, the internet, movies etc.  Note especially verses 2, 3, 4, 5b, 6, 7. Makes you wonder if God had our technologies in mind when He inspired it to be written.

By the way. When this Psalm talks about destroying the wicked, it is King David saying it as the ruler of his country. It certainly is not encouraging us to take justice into our own hands.

Psalm 101

1I will sing of steadfast love and justice;

to you, O LORD, I will make music.

2I will ponder the way that is blameless.

Oh when will you come to me?

I will walk with integrity of heart

within my house;

3I will not set before my eyes

anything that is worthless.

I hate the work of those who fall away;

it shall not cling to me.

4 A perverse heart shall be far from me;

I will know nothing of evil.

5Whoever slanders his neighbor secretly

I will destroy.

Whoever has a haughty look and an arrogant heart

I will not endure.

6I will look with favor on the faithful in the land,

that they may dwell with me;

he who walks in the way that is blameless

shall minister to me.

7No one who practices deceit

shall dwell in my house;

no one who utters lies

shall continue before my eyes.

8 Morning by morning I will destroy

all the wicked in the land,

cutting off all the evildoers

from the city of the LORD.
